Scenes From the Week

11 Jun

I am so far behind that this post now is from the last two weeks.  It was scheduled, and I had to keep moving it, and I’m still behind in what’s going on around here.

Little Critters

28 Aug

This past week has reminded me that I need to have a whole week’s worth of blogging pictures since I don’t have time during the week now.  That means I went for a walk in the pasture and my yard Saturday afternoon.  Today, I’m sharing some of the little things I found.  The bee was enjoying the thistles that my yard goats are too short to eat.

The swallowtails are still enjoying the thistles too.

This spider was in the garden.  I used to hate them (mostly because I’d walk into their webs), but now I appreciate their beauty and all the bugs they eat.

I captured my first buckeye of the year!  It’s perfect!

Then there’s the fritillary.

This one was not so perfect.

I don’t know how the admiral is even able to live and fly with all the damage to its wings.

I’ll save the rest of my walk for the rest of the week.

If you want to join me for Friday’s Hunt next week, I have the items listed at the top of my side bar.

Butterflies, Note Cards and a Calendar

23 Aug

It really has been a great summer for photographing butterflies!

Since it was such a great photography summer and I was out of my butterfly note cards, I decided to do a whole new set (although I didn’t use the image above).

While I was at it, I did a random Country Things set of cards too.

I even managed to get them added to my on-line store.
